Before the final match of Asia Cup 2023, the star all-rounder entered the camp of Team India. Actually, Akshar Patel, who played a brilliant inning of 42 runs against Bangladesh, is injured and it seems very difficult for him to play in the title match.

Akshar Patel batted brilliantly against Bangladesh and played a strong inning of 42 runs in 38 balls. During this inning, Akshar had hit 3 fours and two skyscraper sixes. During his innings, Akshar appeared to be in some trouble and was seen staggering.
Akshar has suffered many other injuries along with a hamstring, due to which it difficult for him to play in the final of Asia Cup 2023. During batting, the ball hit Akshar's hand very fast, after which he appeared to be in pain. According to PTI, in view of Akshar's injury, Washington Sundar has been called to Sri Lanka as a backup and he will soon join Team India.
However, despite a strong innings by Akshar Patel and a century by Shubman Gill, the Indian team had to face defeat at the hands of Bangladesh. In a thrilling match, Bangladesh defeated Team India by 6 runs. While chasing the target of 266 runs given by Bangladesh, the entire Indian team was all out after scoring 259 runs. Shubman Gill batted brilliantly and played a brilliant innings of 121, but he could not lead the team to victory. Team India has to face Sri Lanka in the final on Sunday.
